About Our Library
- Welcome to the Lakeview library! Classes receive weekly instruction as a part of their "specialist" time at Lakeview. Additionally, many students visit the library on their own to read, study, use the computers and relax. The school library program is directed by Sarah Jensen and assistant, Pam Jones.
Lakeview maintains a large collection with over 13,000 items including books, magazines, books-on-tape, reference materials including online databases, videos and a parent section. Our collection is constantly evolving with current materials to enhance the curriculum, Accelerated Reader program and for student reading pleasure.
We have ten computers for students to use during library class time, recesses and as needed throughout the day. Students use Destiny, our electronic catalog to search for books and access the Internet, as well as our district databases to search for information.
We will be holding a Scholastic Book Fair in the Lakeview Library in early October, during fall conferences.
Come and explore (or shop online
) the large selection of books and find great reads (at great prices) for every person in your family. All of the books have been carefully reviewed and approved for young readers. This is our main library fundraiser for the year.
The book fair is also a great time to volunteer on behalf of the library. It requires a good deal of "people power" each day to run and is a fun time to interact with the boys and girls. Cashiers will be needed before and after school, as well as one late afternoon/evening, to be determined soon. Please contact Mrs. Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 425.936.2600 if you are willing to help at the book fair.
Used Book Fair
Cleaning out your closets and book shelves? Save those used books to donate to our used book fair! This very popular "recycling" event will take place during our January conferences, the week of January 28th - February 1st. It's a great time to get rid of books that your children have outgrown while acquiring a new library that is more their reading level. By January, they will have finished reading those new Scholastic books and be ready to "trade up" for some new titles!
We will accept material for all ages. Our grown-up customers enjoyed getting some new books at a great price last year, too!
